Title: Analyzing the representationof sex and love in “Their Eyes were Watching God”

Thesis statement

Women in past have been considered inferior or less competent as compared to men. As result men has inflicted psychological/physical trauma to women. Rape has remained to be the most form of hatred to women as it inflicts psychological trauma rather than sexual interest.

Introduction

In the book “Their eyes were watching God” by Zora Neale Hurtson, marriage and sex are not built in marriage. Women are married off to men they do not love while men marry for other reasons other than love. Going through the life of Janie we can conclude that this text is microcosm of the traditional society where marriages were arranged. In other words the novel theme depicts what was happening by the time it was written. It shows the problem women underwent in male dominated society where love was not considered necessary before marriages. However the women protagonist, Janie who believes in the idea that marriage must involve love is seen trying to transcend these cultural values as she searches for ideal relationship. Although this book might have had value in the traditional society today, has no value, since people wish to “be one” with someone, spend their lives loving that person and be loved back as they yearn to maintain their own identity and sense of self.
